Location:  Diehl Hall Room 555

Health science educators are increasingly interested in teaching, assessing, and researching interprofessional skills and competencies using simulations. Yet, interprofessional simulation can require more resources, new approaches to case development, and the use of different educational strategies.

This session will use an interactive game and a standardized template to help participants construct successful interprofessional cases for role play or immersive simulation. You will work in teams to "assemble" an interprofessional simulation by selecting "jigsaw cards designed to represent the different elements required and discuss the possibilities and barriers to implementation.

The facilitator will draw on examples of successful interprofessional simulations offered in the IERC and AHC Simulation Center. Examples may include: interprofessional competencies; hand-offs; community-based care; mental health; global health and under-resourced environments; chronic disease and complex patients. Opportunities for ongoing IPE case development will also be discussed.


Upon completion of this session participants will be able to:

  • Identify essential components of effective interprofessional teaching cases.
  • Recognize the steps of case "assembly"
  • Begin development of an interprofessional teaching case.
